WSOP, 2012-06-29, by Ozone

One name now appears twice on the Chip Reese Memorial Trophy. Poker pro Michael Mizrachi has won his second WSOP Player's Championship in three years.

Mizrachi needed just five hours to close out the final table of the 108 player, $50,000 buy-in event. The win added $1.4 million to his lifetime live tournament winnings moving him into fourth place all-time.

It was Mizrachi's third career WSOP bracelet. His first came in the 2010 Player's Championship breaking his image as the best player in the world without a bracelet.

Chris Klodnicki was Mizrachi's final opponent and earned $896,000 for the effort.

Here is the rest of the final table finishers:

3rd: Andy Bloch ($561,000)
4th: Luke Schwartz ($406,000)
5th: Roland Israelashivili ($317,000)
6th: Stephen Chidwick ($253,000)
7th: Bill Chen ($205,000)
8th: Bruno Fitoussi ($170,000)

Daniel Alaei, Victor 'Isildur1' Blom, and Jeff Lisandro were among the notables who also cashed in the event.
